Lee Health Among Best Employers for Women
Lee Health is included among some of the world’s most recognizable organizations, including Harvard University, Google and the Mayo Clinic, in Forbes magazine’s inaugural “Best Employers for Women” rankings. Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify companies and organizations that support women in areas that are important to them, such as pay equity, opportunities for advancement and family leave. Statista surveyed 40,000 Americans, including 25,000 women, and ranked the top 300 employers in the U.S. Lee Health ranked No. 86. Respondents in the Statista survey were first asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. These responses were reviewed for potential gender gaps. The company then asked female respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. Respondents were also asked to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list ranks the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and boast the most gender diverse boards and executive ranks.
